Denim shopping can be just as difficult as swimsuit shopping. At least for me it is. Like most of us, I take denim really seriously as it’s a part of my weekly uniform. 5 out of 7 days a week includes some form of denim and I’m not biased. Skinny, boyfriend, flared or jegging…I love ‘em all.
Let’s face it…Fall is around the corner and this is the perfect opportunity to refresh your wardrobe, purge the old and get a little experimental. Toss all your old notions out the door and get creative with your style. Explore. Take a risk.
That’s what I did with the four pairs of Target denim that I received in the mail. Let’s review shall we?
Starting with a classic skinny jean, I appreciated the give and take this pair had to offer. Say goodbye to those nasty muffin tops and pancake tushies. This pair hugged me in all the right spots and the spandex component helped maintain their shape…even after a 14-hour day. Multi-tasking denim…I’m on board.
Next up, a boyfriend, cropped jean. Consider this style the most forgiving of the four. We’ll call it my “Monday” jean after a weekend of indulging on tacos and wine! It looks just as cute with heels (my preferred look) as it does with a pair of converse sneakers. While this pair doesn’t posses the same spandex qualities, I can assure you it’s not needed. They're slouchy and comfortable with built-in ventilation.
By the way, distressed is still on trend for Fall. Most importantly, juxtapose the looser fit of this pair with a fitted top if you’re worried about feeling too schleppy. It’s all about balance in life, right?
My second favorite pair, a flared jean. I will always be a little hippie at heart. I love the length with the unfinished hem at the ankle. There’s an authenticity to this pair…just a wee bit worn but fitted where it counts – on your bottom. This pair made me feel like I had legs for days which is a bonus when you’re 5’2. I love, love, loved this pair! The wash is perfection and with just a hint of spandex…I wore them all day at a photo shoot and they didn’t sag once. Right even through dinner!
Last but not least, a mid rise jegging jean. Hands down my favorite of all the pairs! I prefer ultra skinny styles because I like to dress up my denim for work. The color is a medium wash. My favorite part by far was the details on the distressing. There is an ever-so-subtle light pink stitching that just makes this pair! I loved this little detail because it served as the perfect accent against my heels.
5 stars all around – this pair keeps their shape and I had no problem with bottom cleavage. You know what I’m talking about ladies, right? That awful moment when your pants sag and you show the world your undies? Not cool; those jeans end up in the donation bin!
Are you convinced that it’s time to ditch that old pair from 2000 that you’re hoping to get back into? Good because I have an incentive for you to get started…

There's something about a crisp, cold morning that I really love. I think it makes coffee taste that much better. Just a theory I have. By noon, the sun has burned off and what you get is the perfect Fall day that does not necessitate a jacket. My favorite!
I am mourning the loss of another weekend. I feel like October is flying by so quickly. It's insane. From here on out we are going to try and cram as much pumpkin into our schedule as possible. I will admit...the weather has been hovering at this perfect 70ish mark which makes outfit prepping kinda fun still. Not quite in layers but chilly at night.
I'm still feeling the black but this time with a pop of PINK! My all time favorite color. My girls ask me weekly what my favorite color is and every week I tell them the same response - PINK, ALWAYS PINK! They must be really bored with dear old mom.
It's been a dark week already. Hard to lift the cobwebs. I'm on a mission to find some goodness in this world. Luckily that commodity is free with the assistance of two little girls. The best things in life ARE free, indeed.
One of my top five favorite things about Fall has got to be the ability to wear denim cutoffs with long sleeved tops. I couldn't tell you why that is but it's a thing and it's a small fleeting moment before our legs completely freeze over here in Chicago.
What could be better than a dress made out of sweatshirt material? Don't answer that! I realize this trend might not be for everyone but shoot guys, I was ultra comfortable running around the city in this little diddy. Fashion tip: You have to belt this dress or it will look like a giant potato sack which is no bueno. I linked a few inexpensive options below but you can find a wide belt just about anywhere these days. Belting everything is SO of the moment again.
I write this post as I browse pink sneakers online. I have no idea how I end up in these rabbit holes. I look at today's outfit post and I do admire a good heel but I dare say...I think I am becoming a sneaker head! Heels offer such a beautiful silhouette but there are so manyyyyyy sneaker options. Is that the mom in me coming out? I think so.
Sooooo...this top. Yeah, I wear it a lot. Whatever happened to the baby doll trend? I miss it. In other news, I just listened to a podcast with Courtney Love. Like whoa. She was an amazing interview. I highly recommend Girl Boss Radio if you like podcasts.
Welcome to V.2 of this bad ass mini skirt. My last post was rocker chic but today is all about the ladylike details. And who doesn't love a good ruffle? #amiright? This was another one of those unexpected pairings because I didn't try this outfit on before we shot it. I just knew two things: 1. I loved the skirt and 2. I am a sucker for stripes and ruffles. Voíla! An outfit is born!
This week I will be showing you two ways to style this AMAZING studded skirt for Fall. At $50, I'm going to make a strong case for your purchase. It's more versatile than you think but you need to remember a few tips:
